Brush Hill Transportation Company Announces Start of New England Seacoast Tour
This Gray Line tour travels north, through Boston and its North Shore communities, and makes its first stop at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. The tour then travels onto York, Maine, where spectators can take in the rocky coast and view the famous Nubble Light lighthouse. From there, the coach travels toward Kennebunk Village and Kennebunkport, known for its tree-lined streets that showcase 18th- and 19th-century architecture built by merchants and sea captains, as well as the location of former President Bush’s summer home, which can be viewed from Walker Point. Extra time is offered in the village for shopping and lunching before heading back to Boston.
Other Gray Line tours currently running include the Total Experience Tour (Boston, Cambridge, Lexington and Concord; watch a tour summary at https://www.youtube.com/
“Many visitors to Boston have no idea how close the famous ‘rocky coast’ of Maine is,” said operations manager Richard Anzuoni, Jr. “Combining views of the quintessential New England coastline with time in one of Maine’s most well-known villages through our Gray Line tour is a great way for visitors to really experience the environs north of Boston in a relaxed and enjoyable manner.”
Additional Brush Hill/Gray Line Tours, including trips to Salem and Marblehead, Newport, and Plymouth, are also available throughout the summer. All tours are available for groups.

In 1981, Brush Hill obtained a sightseeing license in Boston, which opened the door for new opportunities in the revived tourism and convention marketplace. In the early ‘90s, the Gray Line Sightseeing Franchise or “diamond” was awarded to Brush Hill. A full schedule of one-day Boston and New England tours continues to be offered as well as the Beantown Trolley shuttle, a San Francisco-style trackless trolley car, with a fully narrated 105-minute tour of Boston and point-to-point shuttle service along the tour route.
As the local expert in transportation, one of Brush Hill's specialties is in providing shuttle services. The company coordinates pick-ups for all sizes of groups and shuttles passengers to and from their destination point. Brush Hill’s charter services are used frequently for corporate, academic or special events, including weddings, proms or reunions, for organizations as varied as the Boston Red Sox, John Hancock, and many area high schools and colleges (for both academic and athletic purposes). In addition, Brush Hill participates in the large shuttle movements for the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) and the Greater Boston Visitor and Convention Bureau (GBVCB). The company also runs a number of routes to Foxwoods, and operates the Boston Beantown Trolley. Brush Hill Transportation Company is owned by the Anzuoni family, who also own Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company.
The Anzuoni family has been at the forefront of the transportation business since 1920 when George A. Anzuoni, Sr. founded Service Bus Lines. Service Bus was the first motorcoach company to use rubber tires on the eastern seaboard. Brush Hill Transportation Company was acquired in 1954. George A. Anzuoni, Sr. delegated his son Larry to take control of the commuter line. It originally offered a mode of transportation to domestics employed by the large estates on Brush Hill Road in Milton, Mass. The company also provided transit service on two commuter lines. Brush Hill’s charter business began to grow and soon had many prominent businesses, schools, senior recreation departments and individual clients on board.
Brush Hill Transportation is located at 435 High Street, Randolph, Massachusetts. For additional information please call 781-986-6100.
